Using LDAP to authenticate users

Hi all,

I am new to the Subversion and apache space. With that said I have managed to get subversion and apache built and installed on my linux (rhel 3.0) desktop.

I have setup Location directive in httpd.conf and have apache running. I created a repository and imported some source. I am able to checkout this repository via the httpd interface.

So now what I would like to do is add in some authentication and authorization. We would like to use LDAP to authenticate out users. The problem is that I can't seem to find any good source of documentation on the Tigris site that would walk me through configuring the system with LDAP. I see that the svn book walks through basic httpd authentication but not LDAP/active directory.

Is the subersion community leaving this as an apache task or is there a good howto that someone could point me to?

Thanks in advance - reagan
